Sri Lanka has been a well-kept secret for quite some time. However, it is gradually becoming one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. From the picture-perfect white sand beaches, you’d find on a far-flung tropical island to exotic wildlife safaris that would put them to shame on the African plains, a trip to Sri Lanka is sure to be one of the most formative experiences of your life. When you add in the welcoming inhabitants, verdant tea plantations, and historic temples, you get a place that is so special, that you’ll wonder why you didn’t come sooner!
Some of the highlights of a backpacking trip to Sri Lanka include learning about the fascinating local culture, exploring endless tea plantations, taking the world’s most scenic train journey, going on safari and seeing wild elephants, crocodiles, and amazing birdlife, chilling out on beautiful tropical beaches, learning to surf, engaging in a cultural exchange with local Buddhist monk students, and partying on the beach.
